Want to know about Denarau Island? Find out all about this private upmarket Island including accommodation and transportation from Nadi airport.
The Denarau contents:
If you're looking for luxurious pampering and got cash to burn, Denarau is the place. Denarau's rise to popularity has to do with the convenience going along with 'more luxury per square inch in Fiji' factor that it brings.
Denarau was built on reclaimed mangroves, shown by the murky water and grey sand.
Just 20 minutes from Nadi International Airport, you don't have to go far for your pampered accommodation. This 2.55km² private island has the impressive 18-hole Denarau Championship Golf Course as it's centrepiece, almost completely surrounded by world class resorts and amenities.

How is it convenient? For a start, Denarau Island is just 20 minutes from Nadi International Airport (where you will be flying in and out). If that's not enough, the resorts and hotels organise free transfers.
For me, this is the kicker. Most of Fiji's fantastic cruises leaves from Port Denarau, less than a 3-minute trip from your accommodation. (see below)
The relatively easy (even though I shot 20 over in 9 holes) Denarau golf course is also a mere stroll from your resort door. The most accommodating regularly servicing beer buggy had nothing to do with my golf performance!

Port Denarau is your gateway for cruises to the picturesque island groups of the Mamanucas and Yasawas. It also is a dining and shopping hub of the island.

For more information visit the Port Denarau site.
You are in luck! Virtually all the cruises in Fiji leave from Port Denarau, less than a 3-minute trip from your resort lobby. Personally, I haven't done the overnight cruises, just the day cruises. However, I rarely hear a bad word about either.
The cruises go to the postcard perfect Mamanuca and Yasawa chain of exquisite islands. Get all the lowdown in our hub Cruise Fiji section.
